Baked Dessert Apples

These seriously might be the best baked apples of ALL TIME! I can say that hands down, this is my favorite fall recipe that I have tried this year. Plus, the recipe is quick, easy and pretty much anyone could make these. We decided to use the slightly more pricey, Minnesota picked apples. It was worth it! These little guys tasted like a combo of caramel apples and apple pie. I will definitely be making these again before fall is over!

- Four apples
Note: We used MN seasonal Honeycrisp apples
- Caramels, two per apple
- Four tablespoons of butter
- Two teaspoons of cinnamon
- Six tablespoons of brown sugar
- Two tablespoons of flour


1. Start by removing the core of your apple. We tried to leave the bottom of the core in the apple. We used a corer and then a knife to cut out the core.

2. Cut two circles in the inside of your apple. Then cut the sides of the apple to create cube-like cuts in your apple.

3. Place your two caramels inside the apple.

4. Melt the butter and brown sugar in the microwave for 30 seconds. Then mix in the cinnamon and the flour.

5. Spoon the mixture over the apple. We noted that next time, we would shift the apple around gently in order to allow the mixture to better sink into the cuts in the apple.

6. Bake the apples at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. We also noted in this step that for larger apples, they needed more cook time. Since we used Honeycrisp, which are very large, we needed to cook for 45 minutes to achieve a soft apple and melting caramel.

7. Allow to cool and then enjoy! You can add a scoop of cinnamon ice cream for the perfect fall dessert!
